Wisconsin has just produced one of the most enlightened and progressive regulatory statutes of any state. Governor Doyle this week signed into law Act 145. This new law imposes data quality standards on state regulatory agencies that are similar to those imposed on federal agencies by the federal Data Quality Act.
Act 145 requires that each state "agency shall, in cooperation with the department of administration, ensure the accuracy, integrity, objectivity, and consistency of the data that is used when preparing a proposed rule and when completing an analysis of the proposed rule...." (See Sec. 9).
